Not swinging in the sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from another of Venetia’s garden visits. She was at Coleford House (in the village of Coleford in the eastern Mendip Hills) when she came across this unusual ball boy on the tennis court. We had a day of weather about which there could be no possible complaint today. The sky wasContinue reading “Not swinging in the sunshine”

Mobbed again

Today’s guest picture comes from my Lancastrian correspondent Paul’s visit to the Lake District. It shows a well positioned seat placed in memory of Hugh Walpole. It is looking out over Derwent Water. We had another warm and dry day here, though the sun only made occasional appearances. Indeed it even tried to rain asContinue reading “Mobbed again”

Actual cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony and shows that herons in East Wemyss take a lofty view of life. We had mixed weather here today with occasional rain, quite a bit of wind and some sunshine. If you were lucky, outdoor activities and the rain did not coincide. I was lucky. I wentContinue reading “Actual cycling”

Hill and valley

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to The Newt. She knows that I like a gate. When Mrs Tootlepedal had been up on the moor yesterday morning with the visiting party, she had been much struck by the heather, so after breakfast today, she took me up to have a look at forContinue reading “Hill and valley”

It turned out nice

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She took advantage of the cooler weather today to visit Regent’s Park to enjoy the rose garden. The sky in her picture looks a little threatening though and she had to shelter from a heavy rain shower before getting home. We had the rain overnight here andContinue reading “It turned out nice”

Bad timing

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s holiday in Forres.  He and his daughter Susan went down to see the sea at the mouth of Findhorn Bay.  There was a lot of sand about The weather today was as confused as the forecasts.  It couldn’t really make up its mind whether it was raining or notContinue reading “Bad timing”

Farewells

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who came across this boat, The Ship of Tolerance, an artwork on the Thames by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. The sails are made by children from 40 London primary schools.  You can out more about it here. Today we said goodbye to summer after a great weekContinue reading “Farewells”

Hidden delight

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is visiting the Glasgow area and found himself at the start of the West Highland way in Milngavie.  He is not going to walk it though as it is 96 miles long. I have always believed that the autumn equinox came on the 21st of SeptemberContinue reading “Hidden delight”

Hot foot

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He is visiting Aranjuez in Spain.  It is 30 mins from Madrid and is a town built around a Royal Palace.  His picture shows one of the rooms in the so called ‘Labourer’s House’.  I don’t think that the labourer lives there any more. We had aContinue reading “Hot foot”

A day of two halves reversed

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her father, shows Matilda posing with flowers in the botanic gardens in Edinburgh. The forecast had suggested that if I wanted to cycle in dry conditions, a prompt start might be advisable as rain was on the way by midday  It seemed like a plausible prediction so IContinue reading “A day of two halves reversed”
